What if the Doomsday Preppers were right all along? Hacking into urban infrastructures isn’t science fiction anymore—it’s in the news every day. In this docudrama, National Geographic asks the question: When the lights go out, what do we do next?


American Blackout imagines a nationwide power failure in the United States caused by a cyberattack—told in real time, over 10 days, by those who kept recording using cameras and phones. Gritty, visceral and totally immersive, you'll learn what it means to be absolutely powerless. What would it take to survive from day one, and who would be left standing when the lights come back on?

        Campaigning for 16th president of the United States, Abraham Lincoln arrived onto the national stage as "Honest Abe." But was he really a simple frontiersman or a brilliant strategist who manipulated his public image, using newspapers, photography, and even folksy imagery to win over voters? Lincoln's abilities may have begun in the backwoods, but he applied them throughout his life—honing his powers of persuasion in courtrooms across Illinois, running for a Senate seat and dealing with national crisis as the president. With the combination of dramatic re-creations, scientific discoveries, rare photos and interviews with historians, National Geographic reveals the hidden side of Lincoln and the well-orchestrated moves that took him all the way to the White House.

        American Colony: Meet the Hutterites DVD
        (Based on 3 reviews)
        Category: DVDs/Culture, History and Religion/World Cultures

        Meet the Hutterites—a small religious colony in rural Montana who holds desperately to their sacred traditions while fighting the modern temptations of the outside world. King Colony is made up of 59 people and they are almost all related. This family lives together, works together, and worships God together, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, for their entire lives. And, like any family, this one doesn’t always agree. Most of the colony is holding tight to the age-old traditions of their ancestors, while others are flirting with modern society. Some feel that bringing modern technology, education, and ideas into the colony will only help it, while others fear that this modern way of thinking threatens their very existence. We follow the men, the women, the young, and the old, as they strive to live as proper Hutterites. Some will succeed, some will fail, and everyone will have a choice to make. This is the very first glimpse into the world of the Hutterites.
